Please Advice: Lost my job, lost my dignity at home

Features & Reports

Please advise.
I was in an employment of a bank until recently when my
employment was terminated.
When I had the job, I took my family welfare as my priory. My
wife and our only son were faring good, I always ensure we do
not lack the basic necessities. Meanwhile, my wife did not have
a job then. All the house upkeep expenses including the cost of
running her postgraduate program were on me and I felt
comfortable bearing the costs as the breadwinner of the
family.
After I lost my job in the bank some month ago, my wife got
an employment with the state govt. With her little income, she
has been able to assist in bearing some expenses, even she
pays for fuelling our car sometimes.
The drama has now started in the house and our marriage is
on the verge of breaking up.
Any little issue, my wife will turn it to quarrel, different abuses.
Funny enough, she would be referring to the financial supports
she has been rendering in the house. This is a woman that
did not work at all for 2 years and I was bearing all the
expenses with pleasure. Now she had only supported me for
about 4months now and she’s is misbehaving.
To my surprise, my wife maintains a record in which she
records every penny she spends in the house including food
items and fuel. With this, she always ask me when will I pay him
back.
At the instance of a simple argument/misunderstanding, my wife
would be boasting of ‘I paid for this, I paid for that….’ ‘If not
for my support since you had problem at work……’
Please advise me, I am getting fed-up with the situation, my
wife had changed totally.
